    200mW 375nm UV Build

    Hi everyone. I got my hands on a couple new toys... some 375nm UV laser diodes. First and foremost... don't expect these to suddenly start flowing in like the sharp diodes did. This find was lucky; and that's all there is to it. I'm on a couple mailing lists for diodes - every now and then...

    WTB: Handheld 473

    Hey everyone, I noticed jetlasers and dragonlasers don't offer handheld 473's anymore. Anybody have one they're willing to sell? I already have a 473 labby but I've been meaning to get that portable spot filled. (sorry jnrpop!)

    Cheap OLike/LPS RGB Handheld

    Hey LPF - got an interesting laser to talk about today. The 7-color RGB handheld laser... I couldn't find a name or manufacturer, but you can find it on both laserpointerstore ($299) and o-like ($269). At the time I bought it, LPS was having their black friday sale at 20% off, so I paid $239 for...

    WTB: 561nm or 565nm

    Title says it all... Anybody have a 561 or 565 they aren't particularly fond of?

    Orange 607nm 170mW kvant Labby

    607nm 170mW kvant Lab Laser Yes. PURE Orange. It all started here... ...Yup. The color: The best way I can descibe it is juicy. This is a very saturated orange color with no bleeding into red or yellow. Pure. Orange. I will say however those of us with 589's can play around with some...

    Waterproof ebay 488

    Hi guys, quick review on one of the cheap 488 options available on ebay. A couple weeks ago, I got a notification that there was a $45 488 handheld for sale... I figured it was listed incorrectly and took a shot at it to see if they'd honor it. Turns out, after buying they took down the listing...

    502nm Diode in BadBoyBilly Host

    Getting on a roll with these well-deserved reviews... Up today is a build I've had for a long time now that I needed to make some repairs to. One of the original 505nm diodes in one of the original hosts made by badboybilly here. The diode in this host is a bit rare being a case neutral 505...

    488nm WL Nano Build

    Hi again, got my last build of these new diodes done (for now at least). Around a year ago, I was looking for a WL nano host for cheap to put a 488nm diode into. This was long before the sharp 488's were out, but when we knew they were coming. After a few PM's, another member has graciously...

    565nm DPSS labby

    Let me get this out of the way at the start - this is definitely DPSS. Looking down the barrel shows a square object glued in front of the diode, and the other member who measured his has a very low Vf on the diode. And the final nail in the coffin, this does not have the beam specs of a diode...

    New Sharp 487-492nm diodes

    Hello again LPF! Today I'm sharing pics of my new 487-492nm diodes by Sharp. I have 3 of them put together at the moment, and I plan to make one more once I get my hands on a hot glue gun to keep the clicky button in place on a pen build... (below: 485, 487, 488, 488, 492, 495: 495nm from the...

    FS Binned 490nm Diodes

    Hi guys! I'm going to be selling off the extra ~490nm diodes I have coming from Paul. A few people have come to me already about these diodes, and I have marked them down as reserved on the diodes they wanted... Of the unspoken diodes from the first 20, 9 remain (and 5 more will be added once...

    Z's 495nm Build

    Hi everyone! Got another post about these new fancy diodes we have. This time, the new 495nm diode by Sharp: The first thing you may notice is how green it is. And yes, it is green to me no matter how I look at it. Below is about as accurate as I can show the color using my camera/monitor...

    Sharp 495nm Diodes

    hey guys, Paul was recently testing out the diodes and came up with the following results: ALL SPOKEN FOR assuming nobody drops out 492.2nm - Claimed 492.8nm - Claimed 493.0nm - Claimed 493.2nm - Claimed 493.2nm - Claimed 493.6nm - Claimed 493.7nm - Claimed 494.0nm - Claimed 494.3nm - Claimed...

    Z's 300mW 450nm

    Hi guys! I'll be starting off the year with a much needed review. Over the past year I've been rebuilding my collection, and there was a point where I thought a 450nm should be next on the bucket list. I'm a bit tired of the superpowered diodes we have access to, so I wanted something more...

    My Experience with the 480nm Diodes

    Hi all, I'm very late to be writing my thoughts/review on the 480nm diodes, but better late than never. These diodes appeared unlisted alongside with the 505nm diodes; and I got tipped off as to where they are coming from. I ended up buying 3 of the 505nm diodes (which my batch were all...

    485nm PLT5-488 Review

    Behold! 485nm I gotta say that this new diode here is my favorite diode ever. I wanted something bluer than 488, but greener than 480... and this is the perfect middle ground for that. I honestly couldn't be happier with the color. I bought this host off Rich after trying to make another host...

    Two Drivers one Host

    Question for you guys... I have a host with a switch that has 3 modes -- output 1, output 2, off. Say I want to keep this setup, and drive a (case negative) diode at 100mA (output 1), 275mA (output 2), off. (micro flex v5, nano) Can I just hook up two separate drivers to the separate switch...
